How to make Copycat Starbucks Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins

Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 350 degrees.

Step 2: Using a cooking spray or liners, line a muffin tray.

Step 3: Add the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and pumpkin spice in a large bowl. Mix well.

Step 4: Combine the pumpkin, melted butter, vanilla extract, and egg in another bowl.

Step 5: Then, add the wet mixture into the dry ingredients, mixing until just combined.

Step 6: Fill about 3/4 full of batter the muffin liners.

Step 7: For the cream cheese filling, combine the cream cheese, vanilla extract, flour, sugar, and milk in a bowl.

Step 8: Fill a piping bag or Ziploc bag with the cream cheese filling. Cut the corner tip-off.

Step 9: Pipe a dollop of cream cheese mixture over the batter. The filling will slightly sink into the batter.

Step 10: Bake in the preheated oven for approximately 18 to 20 minutes.

Step 11: Once done, take the muffins out of the oven and let them cool for at least 2 to 3 minutes before removing them from the muffin tray.

Step 12: Serve and enjoy!
